Cooking Light says this serves 8 - not likely. I could eat 20 spears myself I think This is even better grilled.

Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Browned Butter
from Cooking Light September 2001

Serves 8

40 asparagus spears, trimmed (about 2 lbs)
Cooking spray
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp butter
2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp balsamic vinegar

Preheat oven to 400 deg. Arrange asparagus in a single layer on baking sheet. Coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 400 deg for 12 mins or until tender.

Melt butter in a small skillet over med heat and cook for 3 mins or until lightly browned (be careful on this step!!!!!), shaking the pan occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in soy sauce and vinegar. Drizzle over asparagus, tossing well to coat. Serve immediately.
